The Qeej is a Hmong woodwind instrument. It consists of 6 bamboo pipes of different sizes; there are 3 on the left and 3 on the right. The uppermost bamboo pipes have holes on top of the which are covered by the thumb, the middle bamboo holes are played typically covered by the middle, and the bottom bamboo holes are covered by the ring fingers. Not all qeej instruments come in the same size. The size and length of the bamboo pipes are set to have a musical key. For more information, visit the links below.
